Hello all,

And yes, we started shipping the quantizers!
smile

Bjorn was the first to pre-order the module, before it was even announced here, so he got #2, all other pre-orders will ship this week, we'll keep all you waiting for your pre-order individually posted through email.

The big batch is being produced at the moment and in aprox. 2 months should ship to all other distributors including AH.

like Bjorn also mentioned some posts back, the users guide is online at:

all the very best

pix or it didnt happen (hides)


I tried, but the cam in my mobile sucks hard. Sold my G12 2 weeks ago to upgrade to a camcorder, modular porn in mind wink

The 207 works like a charm, i really love the KB mode! SlayerBadger!
But i didn't test any chords yet, cause i just have 1 voice on v/oct...

I've got a Sony digital handycam and I'm thinking of buying a Canon XM2 for some double angle modular porn videos! When the 207 lands I'll definitely make some; don't worry I've got at least 5 1v/oct oscillators so we're covered.

Paid for mine!
Can't even read half way thru the manual without getting the warm fuzzies
This is the one quantizer to rule them all

Any first reactions from the beta owners?

I'm happy with mine.SlayerBadger!
but i only use it 10%... in a monophonic drone voice.

One thing that may not be clear from reading the manual: it quantizes without needing a trigger. I prefer it this way, but this behavior may be different to whats known from other quantizers.

Paranormal Patroler
Huh? I don't know why some quantizers need a trigger anyway. hmmm.....
exper
So that the change in pitch occurs in time with a clock or key press.

@bj_gzp, but when there is a trigger in it locks the pitch change to that, right?

I think the trigger is more related to the gate out than the quantizer out. However I have to test this, as i do not work with external triggers. And i'll have to study the manual on that topic as well, i think there are settings related to trigger behavior.

A thing i can tell for sure, when i route cv from a pressure point pot into the quantizer and sweep the pot, the output is a stepped (quantized) sweep. No triggers whatsoever in the game. The change in CV "triggers" quantization to next note.

So why would you need a sequencer then?
exper
Because you can now quantize other sources. Envelopes, lfos, random generators, noise, etc.
Paranormal Patroler
So why not trigger them? Or trigger a VCA that Amplifies their signal?
exper
Well, because they aren't always stepped themselves. With a quantizer that is triggered, like the a-156, flame tame machine or I beliece the quantimator, any source, smooth cv, audio rate sound, etc can be used as a source for melodies and notes. Try putting noise into a non stepped quantizer, it'll be crazy. So you either need a sample and hold before a non stepped quantizer or happily use one that is triggered. There's always (fortunately) more than one way to skin a cat. wink

So I suppose we are once again at the doldrums with this module? Any info or anything?
matttech
have got mine, but have been having some pretty bleak days with the modular recently, with technical issues etc.. doing my head right in......so i've not got round to trying this module out yet (have got a horrible feeling it may lead me down some more troubleshooting paths.....but that's not based on anything other than my current pessimism)

got to get back to having fun with the modular again at some point, or it may all have to go sad banana
Paranormal Patroler
eek!

Hey man, if you decide to sell it then I'll sell mine as well. sad banana
exper
Too bad Matt. What issues are you having?
matttech
right - day one with the 207 and i can't get any output from it at all

i have tried sending a sequence into it and also an lfo, with it set to C2, all notes active, "major" selected and "N" selected

the lights are all flashing away, showing that quantizing is taking place.....but the pitch of the connected AFG is simply staying on one note

monitoring the output in O'Tool shows that nothing is coming out of the output at all

am using the in and out of quantizer 1

what am i doing wrong??

do i need to "set key" before it will work?

have perused the manual a little, but it's a pretty intimidating read


any suggestions?? seriously, i just don't get it
matttech
can't get anything out of it in "keyboard" mode either - no pitch change is output


have i got it in "bypass" or something???


it's not very intuitive so far....
matttech
apparently it’s DOA.

have got to return it. ARSE!!

Dude! Sorry to hear that. After the shitstorm of problems you've been having I really hoped you'd report back with a great review. Hang in there man. Roll a fatty and throw on some Keith Hudson.
matttech
Yup. It's beyond tedious

The only reason it's taken me so long to try it out is that I was so fed up after all the previous faulty modules (and subsequent creative doldrums that this caused)that I simply couldn't face it. I just KNEW it wouldn't work properly, and would ruin another day's music making. But I've managed to get myself back on track mentally, and am working my way through sending off the various problem modules to be repaired

Feeling optimistic again I fired up the 207.

Wish I hadn't.

Andre has kindly offered to refund me the return shipping, bit I dunno...I'm kind of thinking I might just give up on it and get a refund, seeing as it is literally not working at all. Not sure yet - part of me wants to give it another go, but I'm not exactly full of confidence thus far. And from what I've heard ADDAC modules are usually pretty solid stuff.

I don't get how one chip can go wrong as a result of shipping, but I'm no expert. The box was intact when it got here. Weird
I'm not even angry ....just bored of this kind of stuff now

It's gotta end soon, surely

My unit seems to be A-OK. Indeed it's exactly what my system/style has needed. It's great for poly-rhythms and generative stuff and pairs very well with some of my favourite modules - the Z8000, Timetable, RCD, Wogglebug and WMD PDO (in quad LFO mode).

Here's a couple of tracks where it plays a central role:

mattech, sorry to hear you're had a rough time with the Quantiser - and modular in general. I hope you - or anyone else - is not put off the module; it's a great little unit.
Paranormal Patroler
we're not worthy really well laid tracks doc! Is it all modular? I suppose the reverb is external.
